I am sending this on behalf of Dave Lawrence and the bugzilla team at
Red Hat.  Please forward this on to any appropriate lists that were

> Greetings,
> The Red Hat Bugzilla team is happy to announce the first public beta
> release of the next version of Red Hat Bugzilla based on the 
> upstream 3.6 code base.
> Please test drive at:
>      https://partner-bugzilla.redhat.com
> Over the years Red Hat has made substantial customizations to Bugzilla
> to fit into the Engineering tool chain. Over time the 
> upstream has incorporated some of these customizations or solved them
> in different ways. Upgrading reduces our customization 
> footprint (and thus maintenance) while bringing many bug fixes &
> enhancements.
> The main area of focus for our public betas is stability.
> Functionality that currently works in our 3.4 code base should
> continue to 
> work as expected in the new 3.6 release. These include various ajax
> optimizations, needinfo actor support, frontpage.cgi, product 
> browser, several various UI enhancements, and of course the XMLRPC
> API.
> Please feel free to point your various scripts and third party
> applications that use the XMLRPC API at the test server to make sure 
> they continue to function properly.
> There are numerous other changes behind the scenes that we haven't
> listed. The goal is to make sure that functionality that people 
> have come to expect in 3.4 is possible in the new system.
> There are also numerous new features/fixes that are part of the
> upstream 3.6 release. For more detailed information on what has 
> changed since the last release, check out the release notes page at
> https://partner-bugzilla.redhat.com/page.cgi?id=release-notes.html .
> The database is a recent snapshot of the live database so should be
> useful for testing to make sure the information is displayed 
> properly and changeable. Also with a full snapshot it is possible to
> test for any performance related issues. Email has been 
> disabled so that unnecessary spam is not sent out. So feel free to
> make changes to bugs to verify proper working order.
> We are asking for everyone to get involved as much as possible with
> testing and feedback on the beta releases to help us make this 
> the most robust and stable release possible.
> Please file any enhancement requests or bug reports in our current
> Bugzilla system at https://bugzilla.redhat.com . File them under 
> the Bugzilla product and relevant component with the version 3.6. With
> everyone's help we can make this a great release.
> Thanks The Red Hat Bugzilla Team
